Humboldt Fog

Humboldt Fog is a goat milk cheese delivered by Cypress Grove Chevre, of Arcata, California, in Humboldt County. It is a mould-ripened cheese with a distinguishing layer of edible ash.  The cheese ripens from the outside to the centre, resulting in a fresh goat cheese center surrounded by a pungent runny shell. This runny shell will widen as the cheese matures and is considered the best part of the cheese, by many. The bloomy mold and ash rind is edible, but is fairly tasteless. The cheese is creamy, light, powdery, slightly lemony and mildly goaty.

The cheese won the first place at the American Cheese Society in 1998, 2002 and 2005.
